Limp Bizkit Have Boycotted America

She hates Limp Bizkit

Which is why I think we should, in turn, boycott Limp Bizkit.

That’s right, America. We should boycott Limp Bizkit, and maybe even banish them to Monkey Island.

Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst says his band doesn’t tour the states anymore because “we’ve boycotted America for many years now. I don’t know, I just don’t wanna go out like that. We did a few radio shows in 2010 for a friend and that was it. We haven’t properly toured America since 2006. The reason? We just don’t know what’s going on in America. It’s all about the new catchy thing and that’s always changing.”

So, let me translate.

Basically, Limp Bizkit doesn’t tour here anymore because no one cares about Limp Bizkit anymore.

But in Europe and other parts of the world, people do care? I thought Limp Bizkit were an international joke.

“America is driven by record sales. It’s the home of corporations. We’re just Limp Bizkit, so we don’t know how to do anything but Limp Bizkit. But here’s the deal: say in 2000, there were 35 million people who connected to this band. Twelve years later, lots of those people have moved on. We were a moment in time and it’s over.”

I’d say that’s true for most of those 35 million. So, stop.

Gotta love it when a dude realizes he is irrelevant, but carries on anyway.

And please don’t get me wrong: I am in no way, shape, or form upset about Limp’s U.S. boycott. I hope it lasts forever. But I do support boycotting Limp, just to be spiteful.

    More interested in who the girl is in this picture. Quite frankly that’s how irrelevant Limp Bizkit is anymore that the only reason I read this article was because of the chick in the picture and the fact it was posted on Gunshyassassin.

      Not sure if I would’ve went that extreme, but I certainly understand where you’re coming from. A Limp Bizkit fan myself, I too am irritated of trolls talking shit about LB. We all get it. You hate their music. It’s been over 15 years people! Isn’t it time to move on to a new subject? It’s simple. If you hate the music, then listen to something else. Why waste your breath, time, and effort? Get a life. #LBF
